Traveling to the Road Lodge Umhlanga Hotel
Past visitors to the Road Lodge Umhlanga Hotel know that the hotel provides quality rooms and service at very affordable rates. But what’s the point if guests have to pay an arm and a leg to travel to Durban. With rising petrol prices it just isn’t feasible to take a road trip down and endure hours of complaints from bored and uncomfortable passengers. The other option would be to fly into Durban, but plane tickets are no cheap point either. For South Africans, this changed when low cost airlines entered the market. With almost a decade of service to South Africans, Mango Airlines have proved their staying power in a very volatile industry. They have opened up air travel to many who did not have the means to afford a plane ticket before they came along. In addition Mango Airlines offers their passengers multiple ways to pay for a ticket. These include credit cards, SAA Voyager Miles, store charge cards, FNB cell point pay, Mango and Nedbank Greenbacks vouchers, SID, Masterpass and at any Shoprite and Checkers money market kiosks.
Travelling in Durban is another problem for visitors. Public transport is available but visitors are at the mercy of the specific times that they operate and private taxis can really add up in costs. The most affordable and convenient solution would be to make use of the many car rental Durban options available. There are many car rental Durban companies to choose from, from local to international. Many of them have a branch in Umhlanga making it easier for visitors to the town to hire out a car. Umhlanga car rental can be done in a vehicle of choice. The offerings vary from economical to luxury, off road and even minibus type vehicles. Along with vehicle choices, Umhlanga car rental companies also hire out navigation systems, baby seats, bicycle racks, paraplegic hand controls.
